Politico's Josh Gerstein has this on the response given to a letter sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee from the Office of Government Information Services ("OGIS"). The letter was a follow up to the Committee's hearing on the FOIA held in March.
The Committee is not happy with the fact that OGIS makes no recommendations in its letter -- instead OGIS said it is first trying to work within the Executive Branch to make the FOIA work better. As such, OGIS has made recommendations to the Office of Management and Budget ("OMB"), but OMB has failed to act on these recommendations. The OGIS letter does not say what these recommendations are.
OMB is basically holding improvements in FOIA hostage at this point. OMB should make a decision on the OGIS recommendations so that improving agency FOIA Operations can move forward.
